Tips On How To Deal With Anxiety Pt 2

I had done the first part of this a while back and since then I have learnt some more things that help me with my anxiety that I wanted to share with you guys! For the first part please click here.

Identify your triggers- Most people have different triggers and knowing what triggers you can help you avoid them. Write them down if you like and try to avoid as many as you can. Or you can try to desensitize yourself one trigger at a time if you can’t avoid them.

Read up on it- Find out as much about your anxiety as you can. The more you can understand it the more ways you can find to deal with it. And research can really make a difference when it comes to finding the best way for you individually to work on your anxiety.

Repression- Repressing your thoughts and emotions is just really unhealthy for you. I’m a serial repressor and I know a lot of my problems stemmed from not being upfront about how I feel and I do try these days to be more open although it’s still really hard for me. So just try to be more honest about how you feel which I know from experience is a lot easier said then done but try it out and make it into a habit and it might just work! And something I’ve noticed is that certain events that have happened in your life may still be in your unconscious and may be the reason for certain other problems you are facing so if there are things that you need to work through please do some as soon as possible.

Learn what helps you individually- The same thing that helped someone else may not work for you so try out a few methods and see what sits well with you.

Cut out toxicity from your life- Some people are just toxic. It’s not anything that you did or said it’s just who they are and people like that need to be out of your life as soon as possible. Try to avoid toxic people or toxic situations as much as you can and you’ll see what a difference it makes.

Seek help– in the end if nothing seems to be working you should seek professional help because it can very difficult to live with anxiety. There are drugs you can take and people you can speak to and this can really be helpful. There is nothing to be ashamed of for seeking professional help because it doesn’t make you weaker than everyone else, it makes you stronger because you know your weakness and you’re ready to fight it. If you need help as a couple because anxiety (or any other mental disorder) is affecting your relationship there are many helpful couples therapists and there a lot of online couples counsellors too that could really make a difference in your life.

  1. Thank you for writing a very concise guidelines for us all. And would add if its ok with you, to build a relationship upon personal belief system, so at least the spirit of a person, can lean on with that knowingly one can endure all the tests that are before them and all of the hard rocks that life keeps on throwing.

    1. You’re welcome! I’m glad you enjoyed it! Yeah any advice given in the comments are always welcome and yes a personal belief system helps a lot of people with the difficulties in their life and brings hope to people who are going through a tough time.

      1. its actually realizing we dont need a systematic religion, It has been a crusade for me to share the idea why JC, had endured and why he really died for us. That it is and will always be a personal level of understanding and relationship from us and of influence and grace of the divine.

    1. You’re welcome! Yeah repressing is a major problem for a lot of people because I guess society kind of frowns upon people expressing themselves but it really does make a difference when you stop repressing your emotions. It’s scary but definitely worth it.

      1. Hahaha thanks! Yeah I had been meaning to write this post as kind of an update for the last one because I had learnt some more stuff since then. And I’m kind of a neat freak so that’s why it’s organized 🤓😜

      2. I am a neat freak too! I like the font you used, it was different.
        I thought you had a made a post prior to it about something over anxiety, so this is good you decided to add more information to it. You are constantly learning something, and teaching me something new 😀

      4. No there aren’t any storms in Kenya (luckily!) but it was raining a little and the electricity usually goes when we have rain which is annoying! Plus it’s the cold rainy season right now so the electricity goes all the time these days.

      5. I actually don’t mind the cold and rain as long as it doesn’t get really bad and cause floods. One time my friends compound got flooded and she got to miss school cos she couldn’t leave her house!

      6. Yeah, we have had floods here too! >.< but nothing major when I have lived here, when I moved away from here, there was a really HUGE flood that flooded our whole city! thankfully I missed out.

      7. Oh no that really sucks! Floods are horrible but luckily they haven’t been that bad in the area I live in right now but it gets pretty bad in some places and one of the problems is that we don’t have very good emergency services so a lot of people end up injured or dead.

    1. I’m always ready to help others with similar problems because I know how hard it is to live with anxiety and depression and I always appreciate any advice given to me. I know it’s a long and difficult road but if you continue trying I’m sure you will get better and learn how to deal with your symptoms. Also if you haven’t tried hypnotherapy I would highly recommend you look into it. It is very helpful in my experience.
